Very nice touch and fast (immitation dual exhaust for a faster return, allows for great expressiveness in spite of a keyboard too light for my taste). Configuration is very simple, you can use the manual but general use is instinctive and without any difficulty whatsoever. Using MIDI is instinctive, like the rest (you can use the manual but it is not rocket science). The manual is light and ample, the explanations are progressive, just follow step by step.
The piano sounds are varied and embellished with an excellent amplification (see specifications above). Whether you need a piano concert with the impression of being in an auditorium or a church, or if you prefer more electric piano sounds, everything is there. Good momentum in the first 58 sounds available (ie all styles pianos, organs, harpsichords, etc. ...). The other 292 sounds listed in the General MIDI, the collection of these sounds is not very uniform in quality, however, the 292 sounds offer a colorful, always supported by the high amplification of the piano.
The effects are very large and perfectly suited. Possibility of setting effects, addition or multiplication of effects, etc ... There is also the possibility to connect a microphone to sing and add reverb to your voice (no harmonizer, however, which will double your voice)
I use the Technics for 5 years in addition to my acoustic piano for computer music and play at times when I am inspired ...
The characteristic that I prefer: the ease of use say.
The characteristic I like least: sometimes I inadvertently press a button when I play: result, the piano sound becomes a sound of Rhodes (for example). This is due to the fact that the sound control buttons are too close to the keyboard, but it is not a feature of Technics, this is the case on all digital pianos without exception: it is sufficient to remedy them, to create a key lock as it exists on mobile phones. I suggested several times to dealers of major brands of digital pianos that seem little concerned about this "detail". The Roland FP-5 (stage piano) is now equipped with a locking keyboard according to the manual for Roland, it would be to prevent your children from changing your settings ...
The Technics sxPX338B still holds the road despite his "seniority" (2001), it sounds correct but more importantly, it has a high amplification, one touch is a bit light but it can work any style piano.
Tip: When this model was released in 2001 was the high-end home Technics.
